To install the package first import jaromil PGP key:

gpg --recv-keys 6113D89CA825C5CEDD02C87273B35DA54ACB7D10

Alternatively add keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve to your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf.

This key can also be found on

In case anyone else gets this error (and the install fails):

error: '/home/poorman/builds/tomb/tomb-2.2-3-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz': could not find or read package

the fix that worked for me was to edit line 51 in PKGBUILD:
change "arch='any'" to "arch='x84_64'" (or whatever is your actual arch).

This one may be obvious to experienced AUR users but I still thought I'd share (this is my first comment in AUR).

Yup, having ${pkgbase} works:

build() {
cd ${srcdir}/${pkgbase}-${pkgver}/extras/kdf-keys

parazyd commented on 2016-01-14 08:25

Okay, edit line 32 (the build function) to use pkgbase instead of pkgname and try this way.
Let me know if it works, then I will update the package.

I have not modified the PKGBUILD file in any way, it just runs through yaourt.

The problem arises because yaourt is trying to install tomb-kdf and the `build()` function has `cd ${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/extras/kdf-keys`. In the case of building tomb-kdf, this expands to `${srcdir}/tomb-kdf-2.2/extras/kdf-keys`; however, the source is actually located in `${srcdir}/tomb-2.2/extras/kdf-keys`, hence the error.

Have you edited the PKGBUILD?
I can install just fine.

You have to install both tomb and tomb-kdf though. The -kdf is just additions to tomb, not standalone.

This fails to compile for me due to the following error:

./PKGBUILD: line 32: cd: /tmp/makepkg/tomb/src/tomb-kdf-2.2/extras/kdf-keys: No such file or directory

parazyd commented on 2016-01-01 13:33

Fixed now.

Happy new year to you as well!

Happy New Year !

One small point to nitpick on.
gtomb is not a proper optdepends.
Installing it doesn't extend the functionality of the tomb command.
It's a program that uses tomb.

Different would be the story if you would add the build of the gtomb files that jaromil included with the tomb repo.
Then you would add zenity as optdepend to make the the additional binary/script included in the tomb package working

I tried it before commenting here but didn't work, maybe i did anything wrong. I finally installed it manually from their files. Thank you very much.

@dolphinziyo Edit PKGBUILD (when prompted by yaourt for example, or open manually) and add 'armv6' (my guess for RPi) to 'arch' list.
